In our Demo Lab, we celebrate that @UNLibrary has officially digitalized their archives in UN Geneva, and the original League of Nations documents (that's millions of pages). Wow!

A Diplomats Guide to Conferences in Geneva: @UNLibrary has produced the tool, "Conference Primers." This platform provides a one-stop-shop for diplomats to understand key decisions taken at recent and historic conferences. Presented by Anne Matthey-De-L’Endroit Ijeh. Bravo!
